2. What does the name Zwende mean?

The name Zwende is inspired from the Spanish word ‘duende’ which means having soul, a heightened state of emotion, expression and authenticity. This word has no parallel in any other language because of its complex meaning and it perfectly captures what we do and what we stand for.

When you customize a product on our platform, you essentially add a little more of you and therefore a soul to the product, unleashing your creativity and expressing yourself in the process. Add a zing to the word duende and you have “Zwende”.
